OUR PROJECTS AND EVENTS
We’ve teamed up with several local businesses and groups to bring you events that will not only be fun, but benefit our cause. Sure, asking for a donation may be easy, but as our candidate Jarrod says “I find it easier, for me at least, to give someone something in return when I’m asking for a donation.” So check out our events and projects below to find one (or more) that captures your interest!
Burpees against Blood Cancer

Thanks to everyone who came out and went through the wringer. Burpees are awful, but we made them do some good. Congrats to Crossfit Cimmeria, who won the contest having the most participants of any gym. Let’s make this even bigger! Next year I want to get gyms from across the country to participate.

The team at Wooden Shoe Farm has generously agreed to help us raise funds for blood cancer research. Look for their special photo op, take a pic and use the hashtag #bulbsagainstbloodcancer. They’ll make a donation for every photo posted using the hashtag. You can also add to the cause yourself at the donation center located at the festival.

Every dollar donate goes to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help find cures for blood cancers. If you don’t support our campaign, we ask that you support someones.
